Anyone remember this device?

My friends brother showed me a device that he used to make a marijuana "tincture" using 190 proof grain alcohol as the solvent and it had a "Christmas tree" aluminum tower of decreasing concentric levels on top that condensed the vapor which dropped down into a container at the bottom. A light bulb was the heat source to vaporize the alcohol and the aluminum was designed to contain ice water for the condenser tower levels. My explanation is from memory back to the early to mid 70's but this the best I can do. Does anyone rember what it was called and is it available today?

ISOMISER

"Turn your SHIT to GOLD!" was the catch phrase used as I recall. There was always an ad in the back of High Times for these. Not sure if they are even made anymore, haven't read a High Times in years. But it was definitely named ISOMISER.

I remember those. Isomerizer or IS02.



My buddy used to have one. Poor guy burnt every batch he ever made. The fuck head didn't know how to make oil. He'd just cook an ounce and sop up the burnt goo with a fraction of the same bag.

tasted just like burnt bowl tar.



They're not available any longer but one or two go up on Ebay every year or so.

I think it was the Iso2 (?)

If it is, I always wanted one, because one of the claims was you could get woven hemp fiber products (like doormats from India, I guess) isomerize the inactive cannibidiols into active THC and then extract your own pure red honey oil!!

Of course, I was like 13 years old, and also coveted a Phototron too...

Had a boss once who used the isomeriser with indiana ditch hemp. He said it made the best hash oil ever. I remember reading on OG back in the day that for the device to really work, the input had to be garbage hemp.

ISO2 made by Thai Power.
Can find them on ebay every once in a while. They go for around 500 and up.
